From ‘Completing a Job Application’ to ‘Carpentry’, Education Associates now offers educators the ability to award Employability Credentials for over 100 Project Discovery kits and Achieve Life Skills titles.
From classroom preparation to job success and independent living, Employability Credentials empower students and communicate crucial skill sets to friends, family and prospective employers.
Employability Credentials are an exciting new enhancement to the nationally-recognized job preparation and life skills curriculum from Education Associates.
An Employability Credential allows students to earn a Digital Badge! A Digital Badge is an electronic award recognizing specific student performance. The receipt of a Digital Badge signifies that the student has completed specific Project Discovery career skills and/ or Achieve Life Skills curriculum and demonstrated the necessary competencies to show concept proficiency.
Each Employability Credential represents a Project Discovery hands-on kit or an Achieve Life Skills title offered by Education Associates. We currently offer Employability Credentials for all Project Discovery Kits with the exception of Career Awareness. We also offer Employability Credentials for two distinct reading levels of every Achieve Life Skills kit in our catalog.
Your students have the opportunity to earn 186 unique Employability Credentials on everything from Child Care to Customer Service!

Our colleague Dr. Amy Spriggs is an Associate Professor in the Department of Early Childhood, Special Education and Rehabilitation Counseling at the University of Kentucky. Her research study explores Strategies for Effective Career and Life Education for Individuals with Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities.
The research from Dr. Spriggs illuminates the importance of career and life education and the need to bridge a gap between skills acquisition and fulfilling employment for students with disabilities. As she explains as a keynote presenter in our edWebinar, Digital Badge Credentials can help verify and communicate job and life skills for all students, including those with different needs.
